The course may be roughly divided into three parts: 1) Descriptive statistics, 2) Probability, and 3) Statistical Inference. Descriptive statistics will be concerned with descriptive statistics and descriptive graphs, designed to summarize collections of data in useful ways. Probability is concerned with the analysis of random phenomena, with applications to lotteries, genetics, business decisions, reliability, standardized testing, measurement errors, sample surveys, and many other fields. Statistical inference is concerned with methods by which random samples from populations may be used to make statements about those populations.
